Apologetics is simply giving answers to defend the Christian faith through the use of reason. “Reason” is the Greek logos, from which we derive our word “logical.” The Bible displays many logical and factual reasons for our hope in Christ and this resource will help you defend the beauty of the Christian faith to a world that so desperately needs to know and experience our great Triune God.
